Wandering Siouxland’s Loess Hills

29 Oct

Last week I had a couple days where I could wander about in the northern and southern areas of Northwest Iowa, affectionately known as Siouxland. There is a land phenomenon and area called the Loess Hills, a formation of wind-deposited loess soil in the westernmost part of Iowa and Missouri along the Missouri River. The only other area this type of land formation occurs is in China.

It is a nice drive to wander among the farm country and small communities that dot the area. To get lost among the rolling hills and not worry about the time, but to take the time to find photographic moments on a nice autumn day with a light wind and blue sky. One doesn’t often get these opportunities, but when they occur, Carpe Diem.
